somebody's counsellor. the people who go there regularly. >> reporter: that's why an ohio state professor says they are in a perfect position to then veterans. the results of a pilot study suppose bartenders could be trained to use their close relationships with these veterans to help identify the ones in crisis and guide them toward the best resources available to them. randall based on his experience as a psychologist, pengds a variety of things from post-traumatic stress disorder to medical ailments could be identified from talking to the vets. go? bartenders can learn from some very basic training. >> yes. it does make sense. i think all you need is somebody who cares about other people. given that, if they had some kind of training about specific places that could you refer people to, and what kinds of things you might recognize as a need. >> reporter: now, the author of the study says he has already approached the vfw and some v.a.
